My father was offered the original Ittefaq: Sonakshi
Actor Sonakshi Sinha said that her actor-politician father Shatrughan Sinha was first offered the 1969 film Ittefaq but actor Rajesh Khanna eventually played the lead role in the movie directed by Yash Chopra. Sonakshi said that working on the remake was an excellent opportunity for her as the role helped her ditch the quintessential good girl image that she has in Hindi films. “My dad was supposed to do the original Ittefaq, and I am there in the remake version, so it’s a big thing for me. I think that life has come full circle,” Sonakshi said. She added, “I am upset that I have been the quintessential good girl of Hindi cinema... There are two sides to me, and that is what attracted me to do the film.” The film movie is directed by Abhay Chopra and produced by three major production houses. Besides Sonakshi, the remake features actors Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna.
